On this Memorial Day we should all take some time out to remember all those men and women who have sacrificed in order to allow us the freedoms that we enjoy. Freedom is not free. As much as we would like to believe that the world can be brought together in a civil manner, through dialogue, there are too many examples of evil men who have sought dominance through the use of force. The United States of America, since its inception, has always been willing to fight the good fight. No matter which side of the political spectrum you belong, we should all agree that the men and women of the armed services deserve our gratitude and respect. So thank you Dad for your Naval service and all those who protect and defend this country both at home and abroad.
